Dr. Hingst Honored for Distinguished Servoice

Dr. Mark Hingst is awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the MIAAA, the Missouri Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association last weekend at Tan-Tar-A.  Thanks to Doc and Susan, and their family for their years of dedicated service to LHS!

The following is an excerpt from the awards ceremony:  Dr. Mark Hingst Graduated from the University of St. Louis in 1978 with degree in Chemistry.  He the attended University of Missouri, Columbia and earned a degree in biochemistry before graduating from St. Louis University School of Medicine in 1984 and receiving a Family Medicine degree from the University of Illinois in 1987.  Dr. Hingst has been happily married to Susan since 1982.  They have two sons, Ben and Brian, and one grandson, Noah.  Currently, Mark works as a Family Physician for the SSM Medical Group in St. Peters, MO.

A commitment to the US Air Force was served at Tinker Air Force base in Oklahoma, where “Doc” Hingst found a little more time to get back into basketball, playing for and coaching the hospital squadron’s team on the base.  When his Air Force commitment was up, Doc was happy to find a family practice to join in St. Peters.  The decision to move here was made much easier due to the existence of the then fairly new and small Lutheran High School of St. Charles County.  It was then that Doc began his tenure as one of the biggest fans, supporters, and loyal followers of Cougar Athletics, both at home and on the road.  Over the past 25 years, Doc has served in numerous capacities:  the team physician (for both LHS and opponents), the basketball coach, the golf coach, a statistician, and a PA announcer.  His service to Lutheran High School, the students, the countless hours of volunteerism and donation of his time, talents and treasures, make Doc a person worthy of any honor.

According to Principal, Jon Bernhardt, “Dr. Mark Hingst has served Lutheran High faithfully for 25 years.  His unquestionable dedication, selflessness, and commitment to the athletic program is demonstrated daily in his work with students, families, and fellow coaches. Dr. Hingst has been, and continues to be, a positive Christian role model for our community. Lutheran High is blessed to have him developing the potential of today’s youth into tomorrow’s leaders.”
